    I purchased a Rollei Zeiss Sonnar 40mm f2.8 HFT LTM to experiment (together with a Leica CL). I intend to use this lens with my Leica M. Any insights, experiences and advise from this group on this lens and usage would be great. Thanks in advance,

    This lens is a collector's lens. It is an excellent lens overall.

    Thanks. I just received it and already tried it on a Leica CL and some film. I will post some pics if I could get any with acceptable quality.

    It's a great lens, and pretty uncommon (especially in black). Here's a recent picture (in-camera JPEG):
